The Song of Kahunsha


Product Description
Product Details


"[Irani] vindicates the fragile but triumphant scope of childhood imagination with touching grace."
--"The Globe and Mail"
"[Irani] rewrites Dickens' Oliver Twist with his native Bombay replacing 19th century London. . . . Pure storytelling."
--"Toronto Star"
"Irani has written a gripping and compassionate novel that will resonate long after readers have completed it."
--"Winnipeg Free Press"
With understated skill, Anosh Irani tells such a darkly enchanting story of the abandoned children of Bombay that I felt swept away by their fate and entangled in the world's too believable cruelty towards the innocent. Irani's shocking tale unfolds with a macabre and terrifying beauty that is both heartbreaking and compelling.
-Wayson Choy, author of All That Matters
Praise for "The Cripple and His Talismans"
"A highly imaginative novel, full of humour, poetry and insights, written in a beautiful, spare style. Throughout the narrative looms a great city, Bombay, crazily reflected in the life of one of its inhabitants who, by means baffling, heinous, desperate and often very funny, seeks to embrace the divine with both arms."
-Yann Martel
"[Irani's] brilliant debut novel, The Cripple and His Talismans, radiates with the energy of Bombay, albeit a dark energy... Irani commands attention from the first sentence."
-"The Globe and Mail"
"An impressive debut, a beautifully written modern-day fable"
-"The Ottawa Citizen
""This debut novel marks a step in the evolution of Canadian literature."
-"The Vancouver Sun
""The book's sheer audacity and humour elevate it well above the level of most first novels."
-"Quill & Quire"
